Tom Cruise, in a bid to win over Suri (and annoy Katie Holmes!), has reportedly redoubled his efforts to spoil his daughter.
We'll be interested to see how this plays out; after all, how much more excessive can Tom Cruise's treats for Suri get?
Maybe he's set himself up for *snigger* a Mission Impossible...
We've already seen that Suri has enjoyed a flight in a private helicopter, been promised the pet puppy that
cruel sensible mother Katie Holmes denied her and lavished with new fashionable clothes and shoes... so what's Tom Cruise's next move going to be?
Maybe he can make like Johnny Depp and buy the girl a horse!
A source explained to Look magazine that Tom is redoubling he efforts to spoil his daughter because he misses her:
"He's always spoilt Suri. But now he's likely to be redoubling his efforts because he misses her... What that means for Katie is that while she's trying to instil a routine and introduce more discipline, Tom could swoop in with a fun-only policy."
Poor Katie Holmes. How are her commercial flights, late night ice creams, taxi rides and generally sensible mothering ever going to compete with this?
Suri (or the "Suri" of popular blog Suri's Burn Book, at least!) doesn't seem to be a big fan of the more regular activities her doting mother has introduced her to in the last few weeks:
"Yesterday, I got an emergency tetanus booster shot after I was afraid that Katie’s cab ride idea might have lasting consequences on my health. I hate everything."
Despite this, the real-life little girl - who is the spitting image of her mother - does seem to have enjoyed being able to act like a real child for once.
We've seen Suri out on playdates (that means interaction with actual OTHER children!), enrolled in a private school - no more home tutoring - and out and about wearing flat shoes.
We wonder if Katie Holmes will have a quiet word with her ex-husband about his parenting in the next few weeks...
